[ laughter ] >> jimmy: no. i'm sorry. i don't think it's funny. >> do you know what we do to people like that in jersey? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i will not make that joke again. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i apologize. >> i'll be watching. >> jimmy: thank you. i did like your tweets. they were very funny and very cool. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i have a question. your parents name -- you have a baby boy, and they go, "i'm going to name it" -- last name is christie. >> right. >> jimmy: "for a first name, we've got to call him chris." >> right. >> jimmy: that's cruel. >> well, yeah, parents have a sense of humor. >> jimmy: chris christie. >> there is a story about it. >> jimmy: what is it? >> my grandfather's name was james christopher. my uncle's name was james christopher, and my aunt and mother were pregnant at the same time. i got born first, so my father wanted to name me after my grandfather. he went to the hospital with my
uncle and said, "i'm gonna name him after dad." and my uncle said, "no you're not. i'm james christopher jr. my son is going to be james christopher iii." so for four days, my parents couldn't agree on a name. and so finally, we were getting ready to leave the hospital, they're like, "you got to name him." they said, "what about the opposite, christopher james?" and they never thought about -- >> jimmy: that it's chris christie. >> right. so i got home, my grandmother picked me up and said, "look at little chris christie." and my mother said she was ready to pass out. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that was it right there. >> and by the way, my uncle, two daughters. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. are they named james? you never know. >> both of them, actually. >> jimmy: completely. i think you're a very -- you're on the twitter, you're on the youtube, the facebook. i think it's cool that you're that connected. do you like doing it? >> yeah. >> jimmy: you do? >> i do. >> jimmy: when did you start? >> when i started campaigning. >> jimmy: yeah. >> you know, they -- because i was a prosecutor before. so probably being on facebook wouldn't be the greatest thing in the world. but when i started campaigning, you know, folks said to me you should really try this. and now they actually let me have, you know, twitter on my iphone. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and i do it myself.
and i look at things. i tweet back and forth, and it's fun. >> jimmy: you get into some heated debates sometimes. >> yes, i do. >> jimmy: over twitter and everything. >> yeah, i'm not messing around. >> jimmy: i like that. i think it's good that you do that. that's pretty cool. >> yeah. >> jimmy: the big rumor that everyone's been talking about is that you might run for president. [ cheers and applause ] i mean -- >> no chance. >> jimmy: no chance. >> no chance. >> jimmy: at all? >> no. why would -- >> jimmy: you can always change your mind. >> i guess i could. [ applause ] people happy about that. hopefully they're from new jersey. here's the thing. why would i want a less powerful job than the one i want now? being the governor of new jersey is -- >> jimmy: pretty powerful guy. >> it's it, it's great. >> jimmy: you a came in at a good time. you've done a lot of good stuff. >> we're trying. we inherited a mess, and we're trying to fix it. but i'm having fun while i'm doing it. >> jimmy: you didn't like the tunnel thing there because it was too expensive. >> it was too expensive, and new jersey was going to pay for 70% of the cost of the thing. costs were overrun $2 billion to $5 billion. new york was paying nothing for
it. >> jimmy: yeah. and you know it always goes over budget. you have a guy come fix your house. it's like, "oh, it's close to $2,000." cut to $10,000 later. >> that's right. when you're talking billions, jimmy, it's a lot. and new york was paying nothing. and there's nothing new jersey hates more than getting screwed by new york. [ laughter ] [ applause ] there's nothing. >> jimmy: i guess so. >> so i was on pretty safe grounds. and that's why, when you made the joke from new york about new jersey, made me tweet. >> jimmy: yeah. yeah. i was expecting a horse's head to be -- >> be careful. >> jimmy: exactly. but all right. so president out. >> out. >> jimmy: vice president? >> out. >> jimmy: come on. >> can you see me as anybody's vice president? >> jimmy: you and sarah palin. >> who would be that poor -- >> jimmy: you and sarah palin. this is it. what do you think of sarah -- do you think sarah palin could do it? >> be vice president? >> jimmy: yeah. be president? >> well, you know. who knows, jimmy. >> jimmy: yeah. >> it's an amazing world. >> jimmy: crazier things have happened, i guess. >> i don't know. but it's an amazing world. >> jimmy: okay. [ laughter and applause ]
okay. all right. i'll take that it's an amazing world. well, i can't -- you can't be more popular right now. everyone just loves you. i appreciate you coming all the way over to our show and coming on with us. you saw we did "pros and cons" earlier? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i was wondering if you would like to do the pros and cons of being governor of new jersey. >> i would love to do that. >> jimmy: will you help us out? >> i will. >> jimmy: all right, here we go. you'll go first. here we go. pro -- you get to appear on cool tv shows like "late night with jimmy fallon." con -- >> "the real housewives" won't return my calls. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, that's true. they won't return mine either. [ light laughter ] pro -- you've helped clean up new jersey's water supply. con -- >> except that "jersey shore" hot tub. i ain't going near that thing. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> jimmy: that's a smart move. that's a filthy cesspool. you have to hose that thing out. >> by the way, all those people, from new york. >> jimmy: come on. >> they are. they're all from staten island. >> jimmy: come on. [ light laughter ]

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i know my "jersey shore." >> the situation now. >> jimmy: they're getting a statue built for them in times square.
